No more ranting. Sorry. I have always wanted to see the Alamo.
It is actually a Texas Shrine. It is a very important peice of Texas history. It was a very solomn experience. The grounds are immaculate. And to tour the Alamo is entirely free. You can't beat that. They had a picture of David Crockett who defended and died at the Alamo.
But he doesn't look anything like John Wayne.
After the Alamo we walked over to the river walk. I was here once before in 1982. I had a day pass when I was in Basic training and my family picked me up and took me down there. It wasn't what I remembered but it was very nice to walk around there.
|Best sight of all.|
Time to get back in the saddle.
